Lighting oil/ghee lamps in Temples considered as one of the greatest virtues since ages.

In ancient times, people donated goats, cows, buffaloes to Temples to light lamps.

To light a perpetual lamp, Temples collected 96 Goats/48 Cows/16 Buffaloes as deposit from donors. As per one of the inscriptions on the enclosure wall in Thanjavur Brihadeeshwara Temple, 78 perpetual lamps were lit by Rajaraja in the Temple everyday, amongst, 59 of them were lit using cow ghee & the rest using goat ghee.

Madurai man who has been tested positive for #COVIDー19 had reportedly attended a religious event in Erode organized by 6 Islamic preachers!

2 of those 6 Preachers have been tested positive. People at least now should understand the seriousness of community transmission, and restrict their travels, at best, can quarantine themselves at home!

Mad rush at Koyambedu & Tambaram bus terminals are seriously scary.

Months ago, a local church did not allow Thanjavur Brihadeeshwara Temple's chariot procession to pass through their street.

Today Christians are part of protests demanding Tamil consecration to Brihadeeshwara Temple.

Agenda is not the language, but to somehow stop the event. Two Muslim political parties, Indian Union Muslim League & Manidha Neya Makkal Katchi are part of protests demanding Tamil consecration to Brihadeeshwara Temple!

Do these parties accept Lord Shiva worship? Will advocate reciting Thirumurais to their followers?

He invoked Thirukkural during his Thailand visit..

But they still say..Modi is anti Tamil.

Tamil media is very particular about demonizing Central BJP Govt over #Keezhadi excavation & tries to Brand them Anti Tamils.

Minister @mafoikprajan excellently handles him and rebuts his claims one by one. There is no reason to believe that Central Govt is playing a spoiler to Keezhadi excavations.

It was Central Govt that gave a go ahead to 4th phase of excavations, both the then & present cultural mins r very cooperative, are of no opinion that Tamil culture is against Indian.
